About this book

A lively anthology of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, celebrating the birds of New Zealand. On the skyline a hawk languidly typing a hunting poem with its wings. – Hone Tuwhare New Zealand birds have inspired mythology, song, whimsical stories, detailed observation, humour and poetry. There are tales of shooting and taxidermy as well as of admiration and love. From the kakapo, kokako and kaka to the sparrow, starling and seagull, both native and imported birds have been immortalised in print. This is a varied and stimulating selection from the flocks of New Zealand writers who have given our birds a voice. They have brought extinct birds back to life and even enabled the kiwi to take flight on the page.
